Since 1938, Sam Rust Seafood has built its reputation as a quality focused, family-owned wholesale seafood processor & distributor. We operate under the belief that our success is directly correlated to our customers’ success. That’s why we not only supply the highest quality fresh and frozen seafood around, but also keep our customers up-to-date with industry trends and market updates — so they can stay ahead of the curve. When you partner with us, we become an extension of your team. Every day we work hard to ensure “Sam Rust” is synonymous with “excellence.”
We understand our actions today have consequences tomorrow.
Ozone Water Sanitation System
A state-of-the-art sanitation system is an extra step we take.
When it comes to quality, we leave nothing to chance.
Protecting local waters and supporting our local community are top priorities.
Sustainability & Sourcing
We understand that our actions today have consequences tomorrow. This knowledge shapes our day-to-day decisions and the long-term vision for our company. For decades, Sam Rust has been proud to source from sustainable, eco-conscious vendors locally and around the world who care just as much about the future of our industry as we do.
Ozone water sanitation is the most powerful oxidizer and organic disinfectant that can be safely used for the control of microbes, including mold, bacteria, viruses, and cysts. Sam Rust Seafood utilizes this 100% organic way to clean, sanitize, and replace chemical-based methods.
In addition to complying with strict local and federal regulations, Sam Rust takes it a step further with a self-imposed set of standards that must be met. Our employees receive specialized training on each product to ensure our seafood is checked for quality every step of the way.
Sam Rust partners with a number of local organizations as a way to give back to the community that supports us. We recognize the importance of supporting causes right here in Virginia, and take great care to source as much of our seafood from local boats and fishermen as possible.
